Bring on the new year…

The Christmas season is officially over. You know how you can tell? Because the kids have played with all their toys and are now bored. Commence the bickering! The tree has yet to be packed away. And I don’t care.

I got an extra special gift this year. The flu. Awesome. Parker had it Saturday of last week. Christmas Eve was Alexandra’s turn. But mine was saved for Christmas Day.  At least I didn’t have to cook. We were invited to eat with friends, but I stayed home…holding down the couch.

Ipod

iPod Touch

She got her iPod Touch but not before I made her suffer a little. I wrapped it in her old cell phone box, then placed that in a box, which I wrapped, and repeated two more times. There was confusion, then tears of joy. Priceless.

Her big sis was responsible for finding this giant sock monkey. The boots are hers. She didn’t need anything else!

Shop til you drop

She’s out for the count

A trip to the mall to spend gift cards and cash…we shopped til we dropped. Which in 7-year-old time is approximately 2 hours. If we are lucky.

I woke from my flu coma on Friday, walked outside to the garage for bottles of water, and spotted these loving sights in the backyard:

Frost on branch

The sunrise shining through sleeping leaves. Today is the day He has made.

Now, bring on the new year!

Around the backyard

pink roses

Around the backyard there are roses growing where they shouldn’t.

Around the backyard there is dying grass where our two new dogs are peeing and destroying the grass.

Around the backyard there is dog poop that needs to be picked up, especially in the sand pit.

Around the backyard there is evidence that children live here…squirt guns laid to rest, sand buckets with sand still inside, and small shoes that have been left outside over night once again.

Around the backyard there is a tire swing in its third summer.

Around the backyard there is a pile of fallen cottonwood branches that were toss during the last wind storm.

Around the backyard is a black lab barking, looking for someone to throw the ball.

Around the backyard there is a five-year-old filling a bucket with water to play in the sand pit.

Around the backyard my Missouri Primrose is in bloom.

Around the backyard the daylilies have buds. It will be a few more weeks before they show their glory.

Around the backyard, near Bailey’s grave, the chives are blooming and the bees are buzzing.

Around the backyard Thor has just brought me a stick to throw.

Around the backyard there are wild strawberries that have never bared fruit and clematis that surprises me every year when it blooms.

In the Moment Photography | Reach for Your Dreams…

This is my daughter. She is 9 years-old. She is awesome. Not because she can do this. But because she is just A-W-E-S-O-M-E.
